Create & load RRDS using IDCAMS utility.

In RRDS if you delete a record then particular slot will be empty until

it will be written with another record.

So Reorganization will not take place in RRDS,

It will be only possible in KSDS.

Thanks jeyakanthan , for your reply. I also want to know while creating RRDS cluster can we mention like it is going to have say some 500 records.

If so what parameter is used to mention that a RRDS cluster is going to have 500 records.

You can use RECORDSIZE parameter.

RECORDSIZE(average rec size, max rec size).

jeyakanthan i think recordsize parameter is used to mention the size of a record and as we are creating a RRDS cluster average rec size and max rec size will both be the same.
I want to know how to mention that my RRDS cluster is going to have 500 records.

RECORDS(500 100)

The values indicates primary and secondary quantities in terms of RECORDS.
Specifying the number of records, independent of the number of physical units, such as blocks, tracks or cylinders, leaves the calculation of the number of physical units of space up to VSAM. VSAM calculates the size of the CI and CA to be used. You may specify the CI size yourself, and VSAM will use it as long as it falls within the acceptable limits that VSAM calculates.

Hope this helps...

Cheers,
Kumar.
